Federal minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Friday said that an agreement between the government and the recently proscribed Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) has been fully implemented.
In a tweet, the information minister added people who were arrested during the protest under Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) have also been released.
On April 20, it was reported that the TLP called off its violent protests after the federal government tabled a resolution in the parliament to debate the French ambassador’s expulsion.
However, the government decided against lifting the ban on TLP it had imposed for the group staging violence across the country for almost a week. Nor would the government withdraw the cases registered against the banned outfit’s activists for murdering policemen.
Minister Fawad added that if Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) or Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) wanted to present their own resolution in the Parliament, then it was their right but, the government has ‘nothing to do with it’.
